CARRY ON TUESDAY
This week's quote comes from Sir Joshua Reynolds.
The line in blue is a quote from the famous artist.
A room hung with pictures is a room hung with thoughts;
Thoughts, I'm afraid, of different sorts.
Arthur gazes at a naked figure
And wishes it had been painted bigger!
Gladys looks at the same bold scene
And she thinks it is quite obscene!
Fred takes a look and thinks 'Not my type.
In my opinion she's over-ripe!'
May, who's obsessed with cellulite,
Thinks 'If I undressed I'd look a fright!'
Guy, the local Man of the Cloth,
Thinks 'That deserves the Grapes of Wrath!'
Felicia, who's young and pretty,
Thinks 'I've never posed and that's a pity!'
Bertie, a lad who's not too smart,
Thinks 'So that is why they take up art!'
A myriad thoughts buzz round the place,
And you'd never guess them from each face!
In cartoons thoughts always appear
As a sort of cloud looking really clear.
But all that we can do is guess
As they view a lady without a dress!
Another question of taste here:
